Virginia Wetland Program Plan

Virginia Wetland Program Plan

In April 2011, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), in collaboration with the Virginia Institute of Marine Science's Center for Coastal Resources Management, completed the Commonwealth's Comprehensive Wetland Program Plan for 2011-2015. The U.S. EPA provides guidance, funding, and review of these voluntary plans, which the agency is encouraging each state and tribal government to produce.

Virginia's plan includes sections addressing monitoring and assessment, regulation, voluntary protection and restoration, water quality standards for wetlands, planning and sustainability, information acquisition, and outreach education. The 39-page plan is available online at http://water.epa.gov/type/wetlands/upload/virginia_wpp.pdf, and a summary of the plan is available in the Summer 2011 issue of Rivers and Coast, produced by the VIMS Coastal Resources Management Center, available at http://www.ccrm.vims.edu/publications/pubs/rivers&coast/index.html, or contact the Center at (804) 684-7380 or This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it For more information about Virginia's plan, contact the DEQ's David Davis at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or (804) 698-4105.
